Facing South Florida: Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera

Carlos Lopez-Cantera was a state representative for eight years before he was elected to be Miami-Dade’s property appraiser. Then, a little more than two months ago Governor Rick Scott tapped him to be lieutenant governor, replacing Jennifer Carroll who resigned.
